Allozyne, Developer of Multiple Sclerosis Drug in Fewer Shots, Poised to Enter Clinical Trials

Allozyne’s technology aims to enable what is known as “pegylation” of an interferon beta drug. That means scientists can attach a polymer that helps the drug remain stable for a longer period of time in the bloodstream to do its job. Instead of weekly injections, Allozyne thinks its candidate can be given every other week, or even once a month, Chhabra says. By avoiding the peaks and valleys in bloodstream concentration between injections, the drug might offer improved effectiveness at reducing brain lesions in MS patients, Chhabra says.
